Straight-talkiness?



Jonathan Chait, at The New Republic writes about how the "new new new" John McCain is stuck running against the "new new" McCain:

First he moved far to the left and nearly deserted the GOP (that was the new McCain). Then he had to move back to the right and win the Republican nomination (the New New McCain)-- and he succeeded, though it required a lot of luck. Now he has to move back to the center again (The New New New McCain), but do so without compromising his most precious attribute of straight-talkiness.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
